View Full Version : Update confusion

Each time I start alpha 5 v9 it tells me
You do not have the most recent release of Alpha Five.
Click here to download it now.
So I click on the update link and the page it shows me is my current release. I have only downloaded 1 patch since it's release. I have heard there was other patches but everytime I start alpha 5 it shows me the same file when I ask for it to check for updates at the startup screen. Is this just happening to me. Today I went to the help drop down menu and asked to check updates and a small dialog box said the current update file was Build 1441-3175 — 22-Apr-2008 yet when I click on the download update link the page that open still shows it is build 1396-3165. I'm confused where is build 1441_3175?

Are you running the installer for the update you download? The steps are to, 1st download the patch, next close alpha, and most importantly run the executable you downloaded. The update page does contin the proper patches, but does have the wrong info regarding the current version at the top of the page. The release noted have been updated and are correct.

Mark, I think you're seeing different builds here because the latest patch you've installed was the beta. Suggest you relax and wait for the next official patch release. The beta is not an official patch release. I'm thinking the build numbers and the various "update notifications" will get straightened out when the next official patch release occurs.

The latest Patch, officially released yesterday (not beta) is 1441-3175.

The update page does not reflect the proper build number, but the release notes do.

Alpha Five Version (Registered): 9

I actually did not even read the version info till I saw the post. I usually go on blind faith, and hope for the best. Since it is simple to revert to a previous version, it really has no downside.

PS some great, major improvments with the performace of large MySQL tables
